Top 15 FREE PC Steam Games of 2019 So Far | whatoplay

15. The Defender: Farm and Castle
This Free Steam game takes us back to the good old browser game days when games didn’t
look like much but offered full functionality that could last you at least a whole afternoon’s
entertainment. The Defender is just that, harkening back
to the addictive Base Defense games of that era. Play the archer and mount a defense against
the many monsters that come towards your precious castle. Upgrade and build weapons and potions
by day, and shoot it out nonstop at nightfall. While its short and not all that strategic,
it’s perfect for casuals with a few hours to kill. It has a provisional playscore of
8.79. 14. Neon Boost
Ever wondered what it feels like to be in an 80s music video? Neon Boost is your best
chance, with its neon-lit sci-fi stage and synth-wave inspired soundtrack. At its core,
Neon Boost is a simple platformer game in which most of the challenge lies clearing
the stage as fast as you can. Shoot through walls and use the same gun to give you a boost
through those difficult jumps. For a free game, it’s pretty loaded with content.
It has 3 different worlds to choose from and 72 levels which gets ever so slightly harder
as you go. For cyber fans with a flair for neon acrobatics, it gets a score of 8.79. 13. Himno
At just over 70MB, Himno has a few shining features. First off is its gorgeous looking
pixel art style that melds well with its flowy soundtrack, creating that perfect relaxing
environment for exploring their many procedurally generated maps. Relaxing is pretty much Himno’s main goal.
There aren’t any enemies to defeat. It’s a straight-up platformer in which you collect
wisps, gain levels, and navigate through their dark dungeons with a variety of powerups.
It controls take a little getting used to, but for its value, Himno’s flaws are very
easy to overlook. It gets a provisional playscore of 8.83. 12. Minion Masters
As a PvP real-time battle card, Minion Masters will be familiar to anyone who’s ever played
SUPERCELL’s super popular Clash Royale. But Minion Masters one-ups their mobile counterpart
with some really polished visuals. It almost feels like a game straight from Riot Games’
studio, which is saying much considering it’s by an independent Danish studio, betaDwarf
Entertainment. As for gameplay, Minion Masters is easy to
pick up. Just unleash the monsters in your hand on your opponent and pick the best strategy
for surviving the waves ahead. Balance is a little unreliable these days, Minion Masters
remains worth checking it out with a provisional rating of 9. 11. HOME
12 minutes is a short time but it’s worth every second in HOME. It’s a walking simulator
that takes you through a series of procedurally generated scenes in which your interactions
form the basis for a heartwarming about what home means to you. And there’s always different
poem waiting for you every time, depending on the journey you took. For some, the game’s calm environment is ultimately
enough to move them into reflecting on their lives, whether sad, happy, or hopeful. It’s
not exactly a full game, but HOME’s message is something you can carry along with you
throughout your days–and maybe that’s enough. It has a playscore of 9.03. 10. When the Darkness comes
This next one’s also a walking simulator. But now you should start forgetting about
all the cheesy stuff about home and relaxation. When the Darkness Comes gives you another
kind of thing you can bring around long after the game’s done, and that thing is a whole
load of sadness and fear. The game is essentially a representation of
the creator’s own dark psyche, which is why it offers such a unique brand of horror that
might not be for everyone. If there are any warnings you should heed, it’s the warnings
in this game. Beautifully haunting it is, it also has a way of giving voice the various
dark thoughts within our own minds. It has a provisional playscore of 9.07. 9. Unsung Warriors – Prologue
More of a demo than an actual game, this Prologue to Osarion’s indie adventure does give players
a worthwhile look at what’s to come. Unsung Warriors is packed with both fun platforming
and engaging combat. Set in a fictional 2D European Iron Age, its simple, cartoony art
style might not win it any awards but it does work well in adding to the fun Iron Age atmosphere
while also making it accessible to even the most low-end laptops and devices. And the
local co-op is the perfect cherry on top. Prologue is pretty solid for a demo and it
fulfills its purpose of showcasing how promising their full release will be. It gets a score
of 9.14. 8. Enderal: Forgotten Stories
Skyrim was too good as a standalone title, so the modding community decided to make this
fan-made mod to pay respect to Bethesda’s award-winning RPG. This total conversion mod has its own story
and lore to tell, not to mention new Landscapes that could rival Skyrim’s vanilla launch.
Its world, like its inspiration, is full of atmosphere, horrors, and wonder. With an overhauled
gameplay and skill system, make your way across the treacherous medieval lands and learn about
its unique cast of characters. Of course, you need to have Skyrim in your
library to play this game, so it’s not technically FREE per se. But come on, who doesn’t own
Skyrim at this point? For a community-made game, it receives a provisional playscore
of 9.15. 7. Coloring Game
L. Stotch’s anti-stress game is what it is. It’s a coloring book. Animate the pixels
by adding colors to each square inch. Once everything is in place, watch your creation
come to life. There is no real challenge here. You don’t
go around beating bosses, complain about unfair hitboxes or rant about its difficulty. It’s
a game made to de-stress. Select from its huge collection of artworks
or buy the Expansion Packs to support the creator and add more content to increase your
overall Coloring Game experience. The game receives a provisional score of 9.29. 6. BirdGut
A bizarre 2D platformer where you take control of a bee after being consumed by a bird. In
a weird turn of events, the Bird’s internal organs aren’t really organs. In fact, it’s
a mechanical factory where you do most of the puzzle-solving and gameplay. Don’t ask
us why. It is quirky at most, especially with its
adorable hand-drawn art style. Enjoy its physics-based platformer levels with secrets hidden in every
corner. Meet other insect characters and escape from
this crazy avian sweatshop. Compared to most of Steam’s FREE platformers, this one stands
out the most. The game receives a score of 9.34. 5. Mushroom Cats
We talked about this game on our previous video and it continues to surprise us on how
they made it to the list. As a simple point and click title with adorable cats, maybe
that’s the point? Set in the magical land of Toadstool, aid
these furballs to survive the coming winter storm. Dress them up, give them cute hats
and don’t let the cold be their doom. There’s not much to the game, really. As
a FREE title, it’s justified. Simply spend five minutes of your time bringing smiles
to these feline furries. Who knows? We might see more of Toadstool in the paw-sible future.
It has a provisional playscore of 9.40. 4. What Never Was
The influx of walking simulators set in someone’s abandoned house is not surprising. Marie’s
Room, What Remains Of Edith Finch and Gone Home opened the doors to the unique storytelling
found in each area of the household. What Never Was shares the same concept. You
walk around a house, pick up some stuff, and have a deep existential crisis about things
you never knew about your loved one. Tasked to clear your grandfather’s attic,
uncover mysteries and other family secrets. It’s casual, point and click, first-person
gameplay is still a relaxing treat, especially after a long and stressful day. What Never
Was was praised for its emotional story, visuals and atmosphere. The only downside is that
the game is only an hour long. A playscore of 9.42. 3. missed messages.
Angela He’s visual novel slash romance title is an ode for millennials who are having a
hard time trying to keep up with today’s society. This is a game that’s trying to
express the concept of romance and mental health in a new light. Keeping up with the trends of 2019, numerous
pop-culture references and memes litter around the game’s dialogue to ease its poignant
atmosphere. If the narrative doesn’t lure you in, then Angela’s fantastic art style
is something you should appreciate within its 30-minute playtime. Every scene feels like a work of art and despite
its somber tones, the vibrant colors offer a moment of respite to the fate of these two
individuals. It has a provisional playscore of 9.46. 2. Neon Beats
2D platformers with rhythm elements are rare nowadays. Blending neon aesthetics and mad
2D parkour using polygons is something OKYO GAMES wants to achieve. As an indie title, it doesn’t get much attention
since it’s a short game with not much replay value. However, the fun begins when you get
to appreciate its great soundtrack and stellar particle effects. Every level offers a variety
of challenges. Expect ridiculous twists and some difficulty spikes that might catch you
off guard. Unfortunately, as a FREE title, it’s only
30 minutes long depending on your playstyle. So if you have half an hour to spend, this
is something you should consider playing. It has a playscore of 9.63. 1. Backbone: Prologue
It’s odd seeing a FREE demo game on the top list, but the numbers don’t lie. EggNut’s
noir-inspired adventure puts you into the shoes of a Racoon Detective sniffing out clues
and solving mysteries. Despite its FREE tag, it makes up for its brilliant design and narrative.
Set in a bleak dystopian world, traverse different districts and meet some of its anthropomorphic
cast. Also packed with a smooth jazz soundtrack,
every little question posed before you is a perfect set up its atmosphere, story, and
characters. There’s a lot to digest here since this obviously a teaser for what’s
to come. It receives a playscore of 9.63.

  1. Head's up! As of the writing of this video, the playscores displayed in the video are right, but some of the voice-over might not be.

  2. the person who is talking doesnt know basic primary school mathematics. Also it feels like she is just reading off some paper without having any idea how the games are..

  3. Just got a laptop for my birthday. I don't know much about PCs. Never had one. So this list is helpful. Looking for good games to try. I have an 8750h i7, 16gbram, RTX2060, 256gb SSD, 8gb SSHD and 3TB of storage. Is that any good?
